THE ENNEAGRAM: A PATH FOR PERSONAL AND SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT
Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
The Enneagram is a unique model of human behavior based on ancient sacred wisdom and contemporary psychology. It uses nine personality types for understanding the different ways we respond to our inner and outer worlds, thus offering a path for deeper self-awareness which leads to greater love of self and others. Keeping in mind the fluid nature of the Enneagram -- meaning how the types influence each other -- we will explore the three “Centers of Intelligence” and the nine expressions of personality found within them, including focus of attention, general basic traits and core motivations. This workshop will be helpful for those new to the Enneagram as well as those who have been introduced to it but want to expand their understanding. Knowledge of your Type is not necessary, but if you would like to begin the process of discovering it, there are two websites we recommend which offer online tests as well as a wealth of information:  www.enneagraminstitute.com and www.enneagramworldwide.com
Led by: Marilyn Wolf, M.Ed, LPC
Location: Broome Hall, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church


“Awareness is vital in transformative work because the habits of the personality type let go most completely when we are willing to see them as they occur.”
~Russ Hudson & Don Richard Riso, The Wisdom of the Enneagram


MOVING TOWARD WHOLENESS CONFERENCE 2014
The Art of Spiritual Navigation: Relating to the Reality of Psyche in an 
Authentic Spiritual Life
Sponsored by Journey Conferences
​Thursday, October 30--Sunday, November 2, 2014
In our time together, we will focus upon those energetic centers within the psyche -- the complexes, possessions, archetypes -- and the call to a spiritual life. By far, these are the most powerful shapers of human life and destiny. Together, we will feel the shape and contours of these unconscious entities and come to know something about their ways and their design, as well as about the patterns they assume in our life. In understanding the import of these patterns, we can more consciously engage, in a dynamic and meaningful way, that unique, individual life we each are meant to live, and how community might support our journey. In this way, we will come to understand how for Jung, psychology was not as much about human dynamics as it was about our relationship to Spirit. Each of our explorations will focus on a specific aspect of psychic and spiritual life. There will be discussions about a number of the Christian and Judaic Wisdom traditions, including the works of Thomas Merton, Teilhard de Chardin, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and Elie Wiesel. As each addresses our relationship to psyche, each teaches us about an approach to Spirit. Through an explication of how individuals work with and integrate aspects of the Self and the creative unconscious in the analytic process, we will discover how we can bring these wonderful insights into the nature of Self and God into our own life.
